I won't have finished my trade training by the time annual camp comes around. If I need to book the time off work I kind-of need to do it sharpish (ie now) as the dates regretfully already coincide with someone in my team on their honeymoon and potentially someone else on paternity leave. Whatever the answer being able to sort it now adds weight to my long running argument with HR that being in the TA doesn't adversely affect my work responsibilities. I would normally wait to ask the RRTT next time I'm in but, as usual, my work need an answer yesterday (and preferably the day before, too). thanks for your help.
